My feeling is we will be talking about Syria tomorrow.
The British withdrew their troops from al-Tanf last year
Deployment of British Troops and TANKS to US/NATO Base in Al Tanf, Syria - WAR PREPS
15 March, 2018
There has been a very significant deployment of British Army Troops, Challenger Tanks, Cobra Helicopters and 2,300 STAFF to the United States / NATO Al-Tanf military base. It now appears the US and its "coalition partners" are preparing to use significant force against . . . someone other than ISIS . . . . in the area. The only folks left in the area after the defeat of ISIS are Syria and Russian regular Army troops.
MORE: Word coming in that assets of the US Navy's 6th Fleet are deploying to participate in certain operations in Syria. ( Editor: This is starting to look very, very bad.)
Al-Tanf is a military base of the U.S.-led international coalition established in 2014 with a declared purpose of countering the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). It is located in 23 km to the southwest from the Syrian town of Al-Tanf, in Homs Governorate. The military outpost was reportedly established in early 2016 to train anti–government fighters (″Vetted Syrian Opposition″).
The U.S. military in 2017 conceded that the presence of the U.S. troops in Syria without invitation of the Syrian government was both legally dubious and untenable in the event of Russia′s definitive opposition to it.
At the end of December 2017, the Chief of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov said that the U.S. garrison at Al-Tanf was fully blocked by the Syrian government forces; he also said that the U.S. was using the base as a training facility for ex-ISIL militants.
On 8 February 2018, following the U.S. strikes in eastern Syria that resulted in multiple casualties among Russian PMCs, the Russian foreign ministry spokesperson said: ″The unlawful U.S.′ armed presence in Syria presents a serious challenge to the peace process and to the country's territorial integrity and unity. A 55-kilometer zone unilaterally created by Americans around their military base near al-Tanf is being used by the scattered units of Daesh terrorists″ for evading pursuit by government forces and re-grouping.
In mid-February 2018, Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, in an exclusive interview with Euronews, said that U.S. military presence in Syria generally and in the area of Al-Tanf specifically was illegal and unacceptable.
Given the recent death of a former Russia spy inside Britain, and the British Government screaming blame at Russia for allegedly using a nerve agent to kill that spy (which also injured a number of others nearby), it seems that someone in Britain has gotten some bright idea about taking actions against Russia . . . inside Syria. This is especially possible because the British government has made no secret of its intent to "take action against Russia" over the alleged killing of the Spy on British soil.
There are now public claims that the killing of the spy in Britain is a FALSE FLAG, orchestrated by either the Brits, Americans or both, to set Russia up as the supplier of a nerve agent called Novichok. Trouble is, Russia destroyed all its supplies of that agent under supervision of UN observers.
Russia is demanding that Britian supply it with samples of the alleged Novichok agent, so they can do their own analysis - but the British are NOT allowing that. (Maybe it could be discivered that the nerve agent was NOT from Russia???)
If this is a FALSE FLAG in the UK it is meant to tie Russia to the mysterious gas "Novichok." The next move will be a huge provocation in Syria, where the same agent will be used causing many casualties among civilians.
Assad will be blamed, and Russia will be framed as the supplier of this gas.
Next will come a military strike by the US coalition on Syrian government headquarters in Damascus and if Russia strikes back, it's is WW3.
